We offer a wide range of individual, teen, family & group counselling.
We offer a wide range of easy to access, affordable individual, teen, family & group counselling, however, we are BEST known for helping transitional age youth (14–29 years of age) and for transforming how mental health services are delivered. Fan/Joy Junior Chef programs brings teens and young adults into our commercial restaurant kitchen to cook up change that will last a lifetime, perfect for teens who don’t want to go to a counsellor because NOTHING IS WRONG WITH THEM! They just need some guidance, mentorship and strategies that work to get along better with life’s challenges. WE CAN HELP!
At Fan/Joy we are feeding connection using food, innovative culinary programs, and a full range of counselling services to create change which lasts a lifetime — it’s like getting a FULL MEAL DEAL! We combine interactive, fun and delicious cooking sessions with helpful, therapeutic conversations which allow teens to build confidence, move their lives forward and learn how to manage stress. Not only do our Junior Chefs learn cooking skills which help them give back to their families, but they will also learn plenty about coping, problem solving, improving communication and collaborating with others.
Our services are offered on a sliding scale fee rate because we believe in “take what you need and give what you can.” If you can afford the standard fees of $175/hr for our experienced therapists, please contribute that to our overall cause and if you can not feel very free to have an open, shame free discussion during our discovery call about what will work for you at this time. Sliding scale fees are available for all of our clients because we recognize that times change and shift as do your financial obligations and needs. As a result, we foster an always open and collaborative dialogue between your support team here that works for all.

Brené Brown said “Authenticity is a collection of choices that we have to make every day. It’s about the choice to show up and be real. The choice to be honest. The choice to let our true selves be seen.”
At Fan/Joy, we are invite your daughter to find her true voice and discover the superpowers within her. This program will help nurture, strengthen, and encourage your daughter to allow her to be her best, authentic self. We focus on learning how to make long-lasting, healthy friendships, give back to others by developing leadership skills and speaking truth, even when it’s tough to do.
With 4-6 girls in grades 7 and 8 Megan and Katherine, our MSW interns, come together to explore topics such as friendship and bullying, mindful movement and meditation, body image and nutrition, and safe social media use. This program will help girls improve their confidence, create a safe space to explore their identities, build friendships, be creative, and develop the skills they need as they transition into their teenage years. These sessions will take place on Wednesday evenings from 4pm – 5pm.
Space is limited so register early!
